MTV Celebrates The Life Of ‘Jackass’ Star Ryan Dunn [Video]

Ryan Dunn and Bam Margera on “TRL” in 2004.

While luck helped Ryan Dunn survive the dangers of his infamous “Jackass” stunts, a car accident tragically took the daredevil’s life earlier this year. In remembrance of his time spent bringing gasps and laughs to his many friends and fans, MTV will air “A Tribute to Ryan Dunn” tonight at 10:30/9:30c. The special will feature Bam Margera, Margera’s parents Phil and April, and Johnny Knoxville, among other close friends of Dunn, who will chronicle his rich life and share the impact he had on his crew of fellow madcaps.

“[Ryan] made us smarter, he made us funnier, he made us sweeter,” a buddy observes in the trailer below, while Knoxville notes he is a better person for having known Dunn and having had the opportunity to cultivate a friendship with him. Take a peek at the video and make sure to catch the special for an up close and personal look into the brief yet full existence of a guy who never knew fear.
